Regardless of Who Wins the Election, Confidence in Washington DC ALREADY Is Shattered

By Clint Siegner – Re-Blogged From https://www.moneymetals.com

It just doesn’t matter much whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump wins the election, at least in terms of gold and silver market fundamentals. That said, the contest itself is signaling something important precious metals investors should be watching intently.

This campaign is dragging whatever prestige is still associated with the Office of President into the mud. Few voters on either side bother to spend much time arguing the greatness of their candidate. When both Trump and Clinton carry more baggage than American Airlines, it’s easier to focus on their opponent’s shortcomings.

The victor in this epically polarized contest will garner only tepid support from a minority of Americans. He or she will be despised by most everyone else.

Washington DC is having a very bad decade. This year’s election is just part of a larger pattern that has big ramifications for the dollar and therefore precious metals; the devolution of confidence in our federal institutions.

California Governor Ok’s Voting for Illegals!

By Austin Miles – Re-Blogged From http://ipatriot.com

SACRAMENTO 11/1/16–California Governor Jerry Brown is better known in the Golden State as Governor Moonbeam, and for good reason. First of all, Brown, seemingly not knowing who or what he is, started his adult life in a Jesuit School, training to be a priest. He then switched to Buddhism, a religion that first requires adherents to empty their minds so as not to be distracted by things of the world, a discipline that has been consistently demonstrated throughout his governmental life.

He has used billions of dollars to construct a bullet train that nobody needs, or wants. He spent billions more on a project to drill huge holes under the Delta to ship water from drought weary Northern California where fields are parched, country clubs are closing due to the lack of water for the greens, and Central Valley, one of the world’s main suppliers of vegetables and fruits, needs every drop of water they can get to survive. They have too little as it is. Yet Brown wants to take what little water they have to give it away to others.

He wants to ship this life saving water to Southern California so that basically, the rich movie stars can water their lawns surrounding their mansions and keep their swimming pools full.

Wikileaks Shut Down by Hillary & Obama!

By James Shale – Re-Blogged From http://ipatriot.com

In an attempt to silence the daily stream of email leaks from the Hillary Clinton campaign, a “state party” has severed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s internet connection and ability to continue revealing the inner workings of the Democratic nominee’s run for the Presidency. As reported both on Twitter by Wikileaks itself and in numerous news outlets, Wikileaks has responded by activating “contingency plans” although at present those plans don’t seem to include continuing the daily email leaks of the last two weeks.

Ironically, by targeting Assange, Obama and Hillary have unintentionally confirmed the authenticity of the Wikileaks revelations leaving no doubt that the content found in the nearly 12,000 emails leaked to-date is entirely accurate and threatening to the Hillary campaign. Why shut down the would-be freedom fighter if the emails were the works of “Russians” as repeated so often by the Clinton camp?

Hillary vs. The Donald

By Patrick J Buchanan – Re-Blogged From http://www.LewRockwell.com

In a Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump race — which, the Beltway keening aside, seems the probable outcome of the primaries — what are the odds the GOP can take the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court?

If Republicans can unite, not bad, not bad at all.

Undeniably, Democrats open with a strong hand.

There is that famed “blue wall,” those 18 states and D.C. with a combined 242 electoral votes, just 28 shy of victory, that have gone Democratic in every presidential election since 1988.

The wall contains all of New England save New Hampshire; the Acela corridor (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland); plus Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin in the Middle West; and the Pacific coast of California, Oregon, Washington — and Hawaii.

How the Federal Government Betrayed Millennials

By Veronique de Rugy – Re-Blogged From http://www.Reason.com

Candidates running for president should take the following warning seriously: Years of bad government policies catering to interest groups have created a generation of young people facing tremendous challenges in the labor market and little chance to experience the good old American dream. We can hope that someone will put this government-created generation of disinherited at the center of his or her platform.
